the promise trailer

I can’t tell if the core premise of The Promise is glibly offensive or admirably old school in a Hollywood Golden Age kind of way. Here’s a sweeping, epic romance starring Oscar Isaac and Christian Bale, two of the most recognizable actors on the planet…that happens to be set against the backdrop of the Armenian genocide, which saw the brutal deaths of 1.5 million men, women, and children at the hands of Ottoman government in 1915. That could work – movies like Titanic prove that historical tragedy and Hollywood romance can blend under the right circumstances – but the success of The Promise is going to come down to how director Terry George executes this tricky balance.

And The Promise Trailer is here for us to judge.

Margot Robbie American Psycho

Late this summer we’ll see Margot Robbie in unhinged villain mode in the DC Comics movie Suicide Squad. The breakout actress from The Wolf of Wall Street is playing the saucy Harley Quinn, and fans are pumped to see the iconic character on the big screen for the first time. But if you can’t wait to see Margot Robbie be a bit crazy, you may want to watch this video where she recreates Patrick Bateman’s morning routine from the cult favorite American Psycho.

Christian Bale in Batman V Superman

Based on the trailers, the tone of Batman V Superman: Dawn of Justice couldn’t be further removed from Christopher Nolan‘s The Dark Knight trilogy, because there is no way Doomsday or Wonder Woman would’ve felt right in Nolan’s reality. Director Zack Snyder is taking Batman in a new direction, which is why having actor Christian Bale in Batman V Superman: Dawn of Justice probably wouldn’t have been such a hot idea.

Snyder knew he couldn’t have Bale play the character again, but he would’ve loved to have had the actor play another role in his upcoming superhero epic.

Between all the post-Oscars discussion and all the superhero movie hype, it can be easy to forget about some of the smaller, quieter films headed our way in the coming weeks. Like Knight of CupsTerrence Malick‘s latest tone poem featuring an all-star cast and tons of great scenery. Only this time, Malick turns his eye away from the country and toward the big city.

Scott Cooper‘s directorial career got off to a great start with Crazy Heart, a well-acted drama that scored Jeff Bridges an Oscar win. Cooper’s two films that followed, Out of the Furnace and Black Mass, were less successful with audiences and critics. The director’s recent gangster drama may have been a disappointment, despite Johnny Depp‘s often terrifying performance, but he still does have a way with actors. So it’s understandable that Out of the Furnace star Christian Bale (The Big Short) would want to work with him again for his latest project, Hostiles.

Even though we’re seeing more films from Terrence Malick (Badlands) these days, he still likes to take his sweet time with each project.

the big short scene

Over a month ago I suggested a world in which Adam McKay got nominated for an Academy Award. I would argue a nomination is long overdue for the co-writer/director of Step Brothers and Anchorman: The Legend of Ron Burgundy, but McKay won’t have to wait much longer. After seeing The Big Short, it’s a sure thing McKay and co-writer Charles Randolph will see some awards love for their dense, deeply funny and frightening adaptation of Michael Lewis‘ book.

After the jump, watch Adam McKay break down a scene from The Big Short.
